Renewable Electricity Support Scheme – Public Consultation

This public consultation focuses on the Design Options of a proposed new Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS) for Ireland. It follows on from the first Renewable Electricity Support Scheme Technology Review consultation in 2015 which identified a range of renewable electricity technologies to be further assessed. Further, it uses the evidence base of two pieces of work that are being undertaken in parallel. The first study is an Economic Assessment of Renewable Technologies to underpin a new RESS (commissioned by Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE)) and the second study is An Assessment of Models to Support Community Ownership of Renewable Energy in Ireland (commissioned by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI)).
